Dona ListonPresidentLambermont Events

Dona Liston has been in the event industry for over 30 years with over 1000 events under her belt. She started her business as Parties by Dona, organizing and entertaining at children's parties. Dona then added a retail party store into the mix. If that where not enough, her customers began asking her to plan their weddings, and a Wedding Consultant business was born. She surrounded herself with the best of the best and was able to sell the business in 2010 and move to San Antonio, Texas where she is now the proud owner of Lambermont Events, a mansion built in 1894. Dona and her husband Pat spent 3 years restoring Lambermont back to its grand state that it once was. Lambermont is now open for bookings for weddings, events and retreats. Dona has been a member of International Live Event Association for the last14 years, serving on her local board as well as the Southwest RVP and currently on the International Board of Governors.
